BIOMASS BOILERS

BIOMASS BOILERS

Biomass is any organic material that comes from plants and animals. Biomass is a renewable source of energy and when burned, the energy contained within it is released as heat. This heat can then be used to heat buildings, used in industrial processes or can be used to generate electricity. Typical biomass fuels can include wood chip, wood pellets, straw & food by-products, though others fuels like waste products, can be used also.

- Biomass boilers can dramatically reduce your carbon emissions
- Biomass produces approximately 15-20mg of carbon per kW of heat
- By comparison oil produces over 180mg/kW
Government Funding

Government Funding
- Biomass boilers attract government funding in the form of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
- This incentivises energy users to invest in a biomass system by offering 20 years of index linked payments
- Payments are linked to annual heat use, so the larger the use the better the RHI

How Biomass Boilers work

Lambdamat Biomass Boiler
  • 1) Woodchip is fed into a combustion chamber where it is ignited at a temperature of 600°C to release gases.

  • 2) The hot gases are then re-burned which generates temperatures of 1200°C

  • 3) The hot air and gases then pass through a heat exchanger which transfers the heat to the water, which can be used for central heating.

  • 4) Excess heat is stored in a thermal tank called a buffer tank.
